[PATCH 21/26] block: Do not check zone type in blk_check_zone_append()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Zone append operations are only allowed to target sequential write
required zones. blk_check_zone_append() uses bio_zone_is_seq() to check
this. However, this check is not necessary because:
1) For NVMe ZNS namespace devices, only sequential write required zones
   exist, making the zone type check useless.
2) For null_blk, the driver will fail the request anyway, thus notifying
   the user that a conventional zone was targeted.
3) For all other zoned devices, zone append is now emulated using zone
   write plugging, which checks that a zone append operation does not
   target a conventional zone.

In preparation for the removal of zone write locking and its
conventional zone bitmap (used by bio_zone_is_seq()), remove the
bio_zone_is_seq() call from blk_check_zone_append().
